    Over 60's Dance Troupe and Classes

    Tracks believes in dance as a whole of life activity. The Grey Panthers dancing troupe for the over 60's is a prime example of this.
    The longest continually running seniors community dance group in Australia. This group of seniors aged 60 and above will participate in a weekly class on Friday mornings (as they have for the past 30 years). As regular performers on the Darwin and surrounding region’s calendar the group will present a mixture of repertoire and new works at various charitable and senior specific events.

    Join the Grey Panthers

    Classes are held in both Darwin and Coomalie regions. All you need to do, is be over 60 years young. Darwin classes are held each Friday morning at the Tracks Studio.

    In 2018 the Grey Panthers spread to the Coomalie Region with an additional weekly class being taught in Bachelor on Tuesdays led by Darryl Butler - Grey Panther, Tracks performer, and alumnus of our Tracks choreographic program. Contact us.
